HYPERNATURAL SOUNDS#2: UNHEARD

Unheard is a paradoxical event. It deals with the theme of making audible the intangible and imperceptible processes, from organic rivers to data flowing. This is what the hypernatural series discusses: transformations of natural into art, digital into natural. In this occasion we will hear 3 artists perform different transformations of unheard phenomena into sounds; this goes beyond sonification because this goes beyond 1-1 mappings of “this becomes that”. Here, these artists explore “this is also that when re-contextualized as sound”. After the performances we will open the floor for a panel discussion. The hypernatural series is always bringing musicians and theorists into a space for discussion and sharing with the audience, which includes current scientific and philosophic studies of non-human subjectivities, music & media theory, etc. 

Line-up: TBA
